Would that be the "half-times" you use pH Up, or the "half-times" you use pH

Considering the size of the loss and the frequency of occurrence, do you
suppose it *might* be possible to provide enough information to at least
forward a _guess_? Here, you don't even tell us why *you* believe it's
necessary to use pH Up *and* down...
